Gallery: Subarquitectura’s 360° House Embraces Geometry With a Spiralin...

In addition to satisfying the requirements of the client, the design also creates a unique experience for residents and guests of the home. “As a result of the helix-like shape, and by allowing travel in a smooth and continuous way thanks to an 8% slope along the walkways, it creates the sensation when using it that it is much bigger than it appears on the outside.”

Some of the most inspiring architecture begins with a basic idea that is then transformed into innovative design. In the case of 360° House – a home that was designed to trace a 360 degree loop – the end result was revolutionary. Created by the Spanish firm Subarquitectura, the home is a unique interpretation of the geometry of architecture which tries to reshape our understanding of space in modern homes.

According to the team responsible for the project – Andrés Silanes, Fernando Valderrama and Carlos Bañón – the initial seedling of the idea for 360 House stemmed from a series of practical requests from the resident who commissioned the home, and the twin desire to create a house that was both beautiful and functional. “The aim of the shape is to respond to the many architectural inputs,” the team says. “To solve at the same time the problem of constructing a home on a slope, to take advantage of the beautiful mountain views that surround the perimeter, and to multiply the possibilities of use.”
